The End of an Era…
On Friday June 22, 2012 we opened on the Las Vegas Strip.
We had “made it”. We made history as the only show in Las Vegas history to be developed at the local level and then make the move to the famed boulevard. We were – and are – the only show of our kind, a mashup of pop culture commentary, horror film celebration, and musical theatre celebration.
We have enjoyed our time at the V Theater. We have made a lot of friends, and have entertained thousands and thousands of fans. We’ve hosted countless weddings, many celebrities, and even a Saudi Prince and his entourage (complete with armed escorts).
But now we must announce that on November 28th we will be presenting our final performance at the V Theater. That night we will spray our final 20 gallons of blood over the audience, slay our final deadites on that stage, and take our final bow.
This is not a joke. We are closing up our show at the V Theater.
You have 10 performances left to catch us at the V Theater. We recommend you JOIN US this weekend for sure and, if you are a fan of the show, you’ll want to be there on the 27th and 28th of November for some very special performances.
Don’t fret, screwheads!
We aren’t LEAVING Las Vegas altogether!
In fact, we are – as the Jeffersons declared long ago – movin’ on up!
Starting Tuesday 12/1/2015 we will be presenting our wicked little show at:
THE TOMMY WIND THEATER Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30pm.
You read that right – we are moving to PRIME TIME at one of the most beautiful venues in Las Vegas!
We are so excited we can hardly contain ourselves! Chainsaw, Boomstick, BLOOD in PRIME TIME!
5 nights a week we’ll be “slaying ’em” in the aisles!
JOIN US for our all-new kickassery at our new home!
